Obama Makes His Case For Re-Election

President Obama makes the case for his re-election. Shorter version: We can move forward or fall back. [All quotes from @BarackObama]

  • "I said we'd repeal 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell', we ended it."
  • "I said we’d crack down on reckless practices on Wall Street, and we did."
  • "I said that I'd end the war in Iraq, and I ended it."
  • "I said I'd pass health care reform, and I passed it.

  • "I'm not going to turn Medicare into a voucher to pay for a millionaire's tax cut."
  • "We don’t want politicians in Washington, most of whom are male, to make health care decisions that women can make for themselves."
  • "I will never allow politicians in Washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves."

Change You Can Believe In:

  • Today, our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million jobs. The American auto industry is back on top. Home values are on the rise
  • America’s dependence on foreign oil has reached a 20-year low, down 25% since President Obama took office
  • President Obama kept his promise to end the war in Iraq. Romney called the decision to bring our troops home "tragic"
  • Under Obamacare, insurance companies won’t be able to charge women more than men for the same coverage. 3.1 million more young Americans under age 26 have health coverage.
  • The first bill President Obama signed into law was the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which helps women fight for equal pay.
  • The raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound, eliminated the man responsible for the 9/11
  • Gay and lesbian servicemembers don't have to lie about who they are to serve their country
  • President Obama has signed 18 tax cuts that are helping small businesses grow and create jobs.
  • President Obama’s plan extends tax cuts for 97% of America's small business owners
  • Since taking office, President Obama has cut taxes for the typical American family by $3,600.
  • Since January 2010, we’ve added 479,000 manufacturing jobs—the biggest gains in that sector since the mid-1990s.
  • Consumer confidence is at its highest level in 5 years, while foreclosures are at a 5-year low.

  • Companies hired more workers in October than any time in the last 8 months.
  • President Obama doubled funding for Pell Grants, increasing the number of recipients to nearly 10 million students.

President Obama on Romney:

  • "We know what change looks like, and what he's selling ain't it."
  • "He’s tried as hard as he can to repackage the same old bad ideas and make them out to be new ideas."
  • "Romney would take us back to the failed policies that crashed our economy."
  • "Romney has been using all his talents as a salesman to dress up these very same policies that failed our country so badly."
  • "Romney has said it’s “fair” for him to pay a lower tax rate than a worker making $50,000, despite making nearly $14 million last year."
  • "Romney can't pay for his $5 trillion in tax cuts that favor the wealthy without raising middle-class taxes or exploding the deficit."

Not Change:

  • "Giving more power back to the biggest banks, that’s not change."
  • "Another $5 trillion in tax cuts for the wealthiest—that’s not change."
  • "Ruling out compromise by pledging to rubber-stamp the Tea Party's agenda in Congress—that's not change."


  • "No one who fights for this country should have to fight for a job, or a roof over their head, or the care they need when they come home."
  • "We believe our country is better when people can count on Medicare and Social Security in their golden years."
  • "We believe that quality health care and a dignified retirement aren't just achievable goals—they’re a measure of our values as a nation."
  • It’s time to use the savings from ending the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to start paying down our debt and rebuilding America."
  • "Change is finally turning the page on a decade of war to do some nation-building here at home."

Obama on Obama:

  • "You know where I stand, and you know what I believe. You know that I tell the truth."
  • "No matter what happens, I’ll fight for you and your families every single day, as hard as I know how.”


I can't help wondering, who would this great lady vote for?

The answer:

It's up to us now. We get the Government we elect. Your vote has power, if you don't use it, you lose it.
